Default shock angle


I built my first tuber and have the front shocks mounted at about 80 degrees which is alot more vertical than the standard ax10 setup and dont quite know if it is too vertical. tha suspension feels stiffer than the back which is nearly stock ax10 setup so can somebody please explain to me what will happen if i lay them over a bit to say 65-70 degrees?
will they get softer? move a but more freely.

i crawl on mainly steep rock if this matters.

You'll get less travel out of them and they will be stiffer and not as smooth the more vertical they are.Not a big deal really,compensate with springs and oil to get it how you like it, the scale guys like it more close to 90 degree in the front for the realistic look.They will get smoother and softer as you lay them over but they also become less effective to help control torque twist.
Is your setup droop style or sprung?
You should post some pics of your rig

think of it as a folcrom point the more vertical they are the more effective or stiff they are going to be, the more layed over they are the less effective they are and softer. vertical climbs lower cg is going to help.

flatter they go less use from the shock so finding the balance 60 70 degrees or lower might work.
